Looking for the Perfect Fundraiser for Your
Some of the Groups we Have Helped with our Fundraising Program include
An event that people will enjoy, remember, and gladly contribute to -- not just once -- but as many as six times or more throughout the event!
My name is Harry Maurer and I am a professional comedy magician who performs regularly in the showrooms of Las Vegas, Atlantic City and I entertain on some of the most exclusive cruise lines in the world! (some that charge as much as $1,000 per day per person to sail with them!)
My shows have been critically acclaimed by "Variety", "The New York Post", "The Philadelphia Enquirer", "The Newark Star-Ledger"...and other major newspapers around the country -- and our shows have been nominated for a prestigious "Atlantic City Entertainer of the Year Award" -- so you can be assured that we have the experience and the credentials to provide high-quality entertainment that people regularly pay to see.
In 1994 I started working with fundraising groups in different areas of the country providing entertainment at their fundraising events in hotels and local theaters -- and we had great turnouts -- 500... 1,000... 2,000 people per event!...
Ways that those fundraising organizations could have made a higher return on their investment while at the same time building their donor list and tripling -- or even quadrupling the donations they could have received for their fundraising efforts!
I combined a winning show with marketing and internet programs (similar to systems that are used by corporations to increase attendance at their trade shows)...
...I then added additional income generating components like after-show sales, included free professionally printed posters and flyers to help my clients keep the production looking slick, professional, and appealing, added customized web pages and social media links to increase attendance, and developed it all into a complete fundraising package that will help you to leverage a higher return for your fundraising efforts!
To set up a system like this yourself would take you months of work and thousands of dollars to implement...
...and even then you will need to find GREAT entertainment for your fundraising event or you will damage your organization's reputation in your community!
Providing professional and universally appealing entertainment.
Building community awareness of your Fundraising event.
Creating up to six different opportunities for people to donate throughout the program.
Building your email and donor list for you "automatically".
Built in income generating components to make the event as profitable as it can be!
Much more than I can go into detail here without determining your specific needs.
That's right -- "Zilch", "Zada" ... NOTHING!
You provide the venue, and other than a deposit to hold the date (which is refunded to you in full after the event) -- my fees for creating this entire event are paid from just a portion of the proceeds of the show -- there are virtually no out of pocket costs!
Fees are paid only from a portion of the proceeds -- NOT from ANY of the donations!
(The donations belong to your group - 100%!)
Watch this short 6-minute overview of our program to see how we take a winning show and make it into a successful fundraiser for your theatre or group complete with...
Although each fundraiser is adapted to the needs of our clients, the following is a fair market comparison of what your costs would be by either doing this on your own or by using our "Supercharged Fundraising Program".
